How much do series cost?

All series cost $35.00. Payment can be made through PayPal, using either your PayPal account OR a credit card linked to PayPal.

How are lectures delivered?

Lectures are offered on ZOOM. A link to join a lecture will be sent to you when you register, AND in reminder emails one day and then one hour before each lecture begins. ALWAYS KEEP AT LEAST ONE OF THESE EMAILS, or you may not be able to join the lectures. The links in the original email and all reminder emails are exactly the same; any of them can be used to join any of the lectures in a series. This is your personal ticket, and it should not be shared outside your household.

What should I do if I have registered but don’t receive the link?

If you don’t receive confirmation emails from both PayPal and Zoom within 8 hours of registering, send an email to the LU Registrar, at

Is registration limited by where I live or travel?

No; our links work wherever Zoom is available.

Do people residing together each need to register and pay for the same lecture series?

No. However, purchased links are to be shared only within a household. If it appears that this policy is being violated, the Registrar may communicate this policy to the registrant; if it is determined that the policy is being violated, LUE reserves the right to cancel the registration without giving a refund. We recognize that some of our clientele may be elderly, infirm or disabled in one manner or another, and such factors may cause us to relax our policy in individual cases.

Are lectures recorded for later playback?

No, LU does NOT record its webinars, because of possible copyright issues.

If I cannot attend a lecture series for which I’ve registered, will my money be refunded?

Refunds will be issued if you cancel at any time BEFORE the start of the first lecture in a series.

How do I cancel my registration?

To cancel a registration, use the Cancel Your Registration link in your confirmation email from Zoom. You must do this before the start of the first lecture in the series, if you want to receive a refund.

Can I switch my registration to another Series?

This can only be done prior to the start of the first lecture in the series. Use the Cancel Registration link in your confirmation email (from ZOOM), and then re-register for a different series.
